Oh yeah, I totally forgot that! A night out in New Jersey it is then :p

Yeah I'm flying out from Heathrow, I'm on the 16.20 - is that your flight as well?

I've been in touch with a guy from camp America who spent time at Modin a few years, and he's given me some really cool information about surrounding areas and what to expect when I get to Modin.

Also on a seperate note did you get a Hepatitis B vaccination? I was quoted £90! So I contacted my Modin contact and he has informed I don't need it now, but I'm not sure! x

It is indeed! I reckon a night out in new jersey could be a right experience...we'd suffer on the 7am bus though.
Ooh, share the info, I'd quite like to know what Maine's like, i'm just thinking it's gonna be like where i'm from...complete countryside.

I got my Hep B, i didn't have to pay for it though, my GP reckon you only really get it for work these days, but techincally that's the case, so they happily gave me mine.

Yeah he was saying it is really quiet, but let me in on a few places to go - he said an amazing experience!

I pretty much ran out of questions or just didn't know what to ask! If there's anything in particular you want to know, I can ask?

I tried getting it through my GP and apparently they've stop giving it out, and then my work wouldn't do it either - so I looked privately.

If it helps, I too recieved the email, I havent had the injection either. Ive sent them a copy of my health form which says this, and they havent replied saying I need it, so all is good :)

And Im flying on the 16th from London. Cant wait!

Hi Andrew,

Like David said we could sleep it off on the bus, we'll be fine! Yeah I've spoken to Ben, I think he's my contact for Modin. The guy who gave me all the info was just some general guy who now works for Camp America, but worked at Modin a few years ago.

Yeah I think I was panicking a little bit too much over that injection, after reading through Howard's email I realised I wouldn't need the Hep B jab.

I think I missed the London orientation meeting, so probably won't be able to fit one in now.

Does anyone know the weight allowance for our bags / cases?

Hahahaha! That made me laugh, im going to take that as a compliment cos i have NEVER been this organised in my life lol usually i leave everything to the last minute, forget something vital an arrive late haha! I do actually know its one bag up to 23kg lol :) but if you need any sporting stuff i think you get to check in an extra bag, but u'd probably have to arrange that in advance.

Hey,
Yeah i had the ramada booked but then decided to stay closer to the bus station for the morning, because the ramada is about an hour out i think, maybe i should have came on here to see what everyone else was doing. Are you catching the 7am bus to portland in the morning of the 23rd? cos the bus im catching leaves from New York at 7 so thought i'd rather be close to there. It will only be a ten minute cab ride in the morning to get the bus. Is any one else doing the same sought of thing? p.s i am getting really excited....

I seriously can't wait. Has everyone privately booked the coach? I thought Modin was arranging it?

Maybe we should all arrange to meet somewhere at the airport? Like one of the bars? :D

Yeah yeah let's do that...I have no idea what terminal 3 looks like or what's there etc so whoever does should just pick a bar and we'll all meet there.
What time are you all getting there? I haven't even thought this through yet...
I don't think Modin's arranging our greyhound bus, I think we have to and they pay us back for it as long as we keep the receipt...Has anyone got their ticket yet?
